Then I wonder why there are some checks:

e.g. nested_vmx_merge_msr_bitmap()

msr_bitmap_l1 = (unsigned long *)kmap(page);
if (!msr_bitmap_l1) {
	// no unmap
	...
	return false;

or vmx_complete_nested_posted_interrupt()

vapic_page = kmap(vmx->nested.virtual_apic_page);
if (!vapic_page) {
	// no unmap
	...
	return -ENOMEM;


But there is also no check in handle_vmptrld() for example.
